Your Garden In July

Updated: Oct 24, 2019

The middle of the summer months and temperatures can get extremely high so it's important to ensure your work in the garden is little and often to avoid exhaustion from working in the heat.

1) Hoe and hand-weed borders often, so weeds don't have time to set seed

2) The wonderful thing about the flowers being in bloom mean you get to pick and display them in your home. Lavender is ready to be picked and dried out too.

3) Feed your lawn and plants every two weeks.

4) Make sure they are having plenty to drink during dry days and collect rain water whenever possible in containers and water butts.

5) Sow biennials, such as foxgloves, honesty, forget-me-nots and wallflowers, for blooms next year.

6) Reduce pests frequently by picking them off or getting nets for flowers, plants or vegetable crops.

7) Summer perennials will need cutting back after flowering for a second flush.

8) Water plants when on holiday. See our article on how to make sure your plants are still alive when you get back.

9) If you don't want marrows and only courgettes, better pick them now!

10) Ponds needs clearing of algae, debrus and blanket weeds. During the warm weather, ensure they are kept topped up.

11) Plan which spring-flowering bulbs you want to plant and order them.

12) Stone fruits such as apricots, nectarines and apricots are ready for harvesting.
